Monthly English Corner & Weekly Quote
- July English Corner
Welcome back to the English corner and this time I’ll give you some tips on how to improve your speaking. Many internationals are so concerned with making mistakes in their spoken English that they are very reluctant to practice speaking. A better objective is to focus on fluency rather than accuracy. That is to say, just speak regardless of whether or not you make mistakes. I know it’s difficult, because I went through the same experience when I learned Chinese in Shanghai. Practice as much as possible. Take advantage of English Corners, conversation partners, etc., and take classes that are specifically designed to help improve conversational skills. This month, try to overcome your fear of speaking, and don’t forget to check out next month’s EFLsuccess.com English Corner. © Mark Peter, M.A. Used with permission.

So whether you are reading this book for cultural and historical knowledge or for improving your English, the Bible is still a book for all people at all times.”
